Chelsea in Bloom

In 2019 John Lewis & Partners participated in alternative floral art show Chelsea in Bloom for the first time - and we were tasked with creating a show-stopping first impression. An astounding 3,000 fresh blooms were needed to craft our ‘under the sea’ themed display on behalf of John Lewis and Edinburgh Gin. Our sustainable design sculpted flowers into tumbling waves, tropical fish and colourful corals using chicken wire and no floral foam. Edinburgh Seaside Gin inspired our choice of bladderwrack, rose and lavender to create the colourful seabed.

We were over the moon to win a Gold Award for efforts… but scooping The 2019 People’s Champion Award made our year!

Burberry Her Launch

 

For the launch of a new fragrance for women, Her Eau de Parfum, Burberry launched their ‘Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner' campaign starring Cara Delevigne. As part of the accompanying experiential activity to capture the spirit of London we worked with Burberry and RedHouse Production to create a striking installation on London’s Southbank. Inside a six-metre long perspex box, complete with scented steam effect and pink neon lighting design, we created a series of ethereal gypsophila clouds scattered with white orchids.

Investec Derby

It was really exciting to be part of dressing the hospitality suite for this year's Investec - Epsom Derby. To mark this landmark anniversary between these 2 amazing institutions the Creative Team at Investec worked closely with the brilliant production agency, Detail, transforming the Epsom Racecourse Suite into a slick and high-end space for guests to enjoy. 

The amazing production featured luxury textured finishes in marble, velvets and rose-gold metallics. The Luxurious furniture, unique lighting and props, dressed the space beautifully. 

The suite was divided into 3 sections with differentiated colour schemes. Bold and blue, natural and green, and finally, blush and rose golds. It was our job to add the finishing touches in florals.

For the blue, we selected the best early summer flowers such a blue delphiniums and white peonies. Adding in some gorgeous hydrangea for boldness. Creating low and high arrangements for the tables and main bar top.

The green section featured terrariums full of ferns and succulents, urns with flowing greenery and nestled white flowers for a natural flowing feel.

Finally, the blush and rose gold section was our favourite. Using white O’hara, Secret Garden and classic Sweet Avalanche roses we packed the tables full of these with huge spayed palm leaves for impact. Behind the blush bar we created a beautiful growing rose wall, not forgetting the statement sprayed palms.

Congratulations to the team for creating such a brilliant space for their guests to enjoy this iconic race. Here’s to next year!!

Blossom for Net a Porter

On Tuesday 17 April, Grandirosa created a blossoming affair at Venue Lab’s incredible space at 38 Grovesnor Square, Mayfair, for Net-a-Porter’s AW Trend Presentation, organised by the amazing Redhouse Production.

Catching the last of the Mount Fuji blossom, it was a final nod to a wonderful early Spring and a warm welcome to the long anticipated summer. 

The venue is the old Indonesian Embassy and was the perfect backdrop to such a stylish event.

A dramatic entrance arrangement consisting solely of gigantic branches of white blossom acted as a stylish welcome to Net-a-Porter's fashionable guests.  

This simple and sleek theme ran throughout the rest of the venue, from blossom and spirea arrangements in the pop-up Net-a-Porter cafe to the showroom.

Amanda Wakely for Wonderland

In October we were delighted to be asked to do the flower styling for Wonderlands recent Amanda Wakely shoot. Collaborating with the amazing ToniBlaze and the rest of the team was truly inspiring and the creative talent was infectious. 

We selected some beautiful large blooms in pale colours to create some beautiful angel wing floral headpieces, which were truly unique.

The moody and bizarre setting for the shoot resulted in some amazing images which showcased the some key pieces in the latest collection
